West Ham offer Liverpool target 6x his current salary to join them

West Ham have offered Liverpool target Matheus Nunes six times his current salary, according to Bruno Andrade.

What’s the matter?

Well, the east Londoners are clearly determined to sign the Portugal international as they put serious money on the negotiating table.

Andrade believes West Ham Sporting Lisbon can buy a total package worth €35m

But while Sporting Lisbon are happy with the money on offer, Nunes himself has decided against a move to the London stadium as he wants to join a ‘bigger project’ in English football.

It comes after some sources claimed Liverpool are keeping tabs on the 23-year-old.

In our view, the Reds could be encouraged to make an offer of their own after hearing Nunes wants to join a ‘bigger project’ – there are few places more attractive in European football than Anfield right now.

Wolves are also pushing hard to sign the Portuguese playmaker, who is also wanted by Leeds.

Interest in Nunes comes after he made 50 appearances in all competitions for Sporting Lisbon last season, scoring four goals and also providing five assists.

West Ham could have signed Liverpool’s goal

In our view, West Ham will lash out for missing out on Europa League football as that could have been the difference when it came to luring Nunes to east London.

Of course, UEFA Conference League football is still a good thing and it will certainly help West Ham achieve other goals.

However, with Nunes clearly setting his goals high, Europa League football could have been enough to convince Nunes.

If they haven’t already, it might be worth West Ham telling Nunes he can leave after a season if they don’t qualify for the Champions League in a last-ditch effort to convince him.

It would be a risky game but based on what he has shown in the Primeira Liga he is worth pushing the boat for.
